The 13th Annual Golf Classic & Ireland Golf Tour Operator Association (IGTOA) “Gala Irish Golf Awards” took place on Monday night, 18th October 2010, with the Trident Hotel, Kinsale voted as IGTOA best Large Golf Hotel of the Year.
The ceremony was part of a three day event including the Annual IGTOA Networking Event and Golf Classic, at the Slieve Donard Resort & Spa, Co. Down, and is the largest gathering of Irish Golf Tourism Industry Professionals in the island of Ireland.
Hal McElroy, Managing Director of the Trident Hotel, was delighted with the award: “We were so pleased to be honoured with this award. All the hard work of our great team has certainly paid off! Recent winners of this award have been Hayfield Manor and the K Club so we’re in great company!”
Amy Duggan, Sales Executive at the Trident (and an ex Irish & Munster golfer herself!) was also there to receive the award. Amy states, “In difficult times, we’ve seen a significant upturn in the amount of golf business into the Trident Hotel. We will continue with our high standards of service and value to each of our guests.”
Both Amy & Hal have invested a lot of time over the last 2 years making the Trident Hotel a great base for golfers. They have implemented all sorts golf related packages and extras at the hotel and have built strong associations with Golf Tour Operators and golfers themselves within Ireland and internationally.
Five Irish companies in total were recognised for their high standards of service, quality and continued excellent industry standards, and were also congratulated by The Minister for Tourism, Culture and Sport, Mary Hanafin TD.
